Instagram messages down: Sending and disappearing messages reported


Instagram down reports have been surging in today with users saying they’re having trouble with their messages inbox. Independent outage monitor Down Detector recorded a spike in Instagram down reports which began around 4pm UK time on Tuesday July 5 and has since been steadily coming in for hours. The Instagram down reports began coming in around the identical time that Down Detector also registered problems with Facebook Messenger.

On social media Instagram users have been talking in regards to the problems they have been facing, saying they’re having issues with attempting to send messages which then disappear.

On Twitter one Instagram user posted: “Are anyone else’s #instagram messages sending after which disappearing?”

While one other wrote: “@Instagram So why are my messages disappearing and I can not see people’s messages??”

One added: “@Instagram My messages keeps disappearing”.

And one other tweeted: “My Insta messages carry on disappearing pls help @Instagram”.

Express.co.uk has contacted Instagram in regards to the reported issues users are facing and asked whether a fix is within the works.

On the time of writing, the official Instagram Comms Twitter account hasn’t commented on the reported issues users are encountering.

The newest reported issues with the favored social network come after Instagram users last week experienced issues with the photo sharing app.

During that outage Instagram users had issues accessing the app’s camera.

With that outage Down Detector registered a gradual stream of reports of Instagram down for over 24 hours.

Like with the previous Instagram outage, the newest issues users are experiencing this week have come after Instagram pushed out a latest update.

This patch was released on Monday. Details on what the update brings to the table are thin on the bottom, with the patch notes within the Apple App Store saying the update, as per usual, brings with it “bug fixes and performance improvements”.
